The safest bet to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the coronavirus pandemic, is for all adults age 18 and up to #QuantineAndChill for the foreseeable future.
Unfortunately, that’s easier said than done for the boomers and elderly, who are more used to visiting a Las Vegas casino or sportsbook rather than gambling on the Internet.
Fortunately, if you are connected to the web in 2020 during this worldwide crisis, then the world’s best 18+ online casinos are just a click away.
All of the top Internet gambling options for age 18 and up players are 100% germ-free and require no person-to-person contact, which is strongly discouraged by all health officials during this national emergency.
If you want to check and see whether it’s legal to gamble at online casinos or bet on live dealer poker, then hit up our state-by-state 18+ casino guide.
Too long didn’t read (TLDR): States and countries cannot dictate or enforce their laws on any online market that is following good business practices.
In short: There is no federal or state gambling law that prohibits any American adult, who is at least 18 years old, from playing at online casinos, poker rooms, or sportsbooks on your smartphone, tablet, or desktop computer.
The coronavirus isn’t going away anytime soon, and it may be up to 18 months until the vaccine is available. The world, as we know it, is about to change, and the Internet will become society’s most powerful tool if it wasn’t already.
No one should be out in public right now since the spread rate is too high, meaning the odds of getting sick or dying at brick-and-mortar establishments is not worth the risk.
You shouldn’t have to risk both your money on a round of 18+ online poker and your life because someone coughs or sneezes at the table, so our advice is to go ahead and fold on that idea for the foreseeable future.
Many sporting events have been canceled or postponed, with the NCAA, NBA, MLB, NHL, MLS, XFL, and many more leagues in the United States and around the world suspending play until further notice.
However, the 18 and up online and mobile sportsbooks have tons of odds and prop bets on anything that isn’t a physical contact game being played.
From esports to politics to the weather, and even the stock price of Trojan Condoms, where there’s a will to wager, you can bet oddsmakers from all over the world will allow responsible 18+ adults to gamble money on just about anything during the coronavirus pandemic.
Hopefully, the viral disease of death will pass soon, and the world’s leaders will learn to take outbreaks more seriously.
Until then, stay safe and if you’re practicing social distancing but happen to be bored while in quarantine—and have ample disposal income after all your needs are cared for—then having 18+ adult fun at casinos, poker rooms, and sportsbooks will always be just a single click away during the coronavirus pandemic and for years to come after it’s over.
